Carl Higbie -- who? -- media's newest anti-Trump pawn

- The Washington Times

Carl Higbie, the chief of external affairs for the Corporation for National and Community Service, just resigned after CNN found evidence of offensive remarks he had made in the past. Never heard of Higbie? Doesn't matter. CNN found an audio of him in June 2013 saying this: "I just don't like Muslim people. Well people are like, 'well, you can't hate somebody just for being Muslim.' It's like, yeah, I can." Suddenly, in the eyes of the media, he's been one of Donald Trump's best friends for years.

The healthy president

Waiting for someone to die, whether to claim an expected inheritance, outlast a rival for the affections of a wife or mistress, or to vacate the White House, requires stamina and patience. From the day Donald Trump shocked the world and appalled the elites, the Democrats and their media allies have been searching for a deux ex machina, a miracle to get him out of the way of decent folk.

Disparaging SpaceX without facts

Peter Weyrich's commentary blasting the credibility of SpaceX and Elon Musk ("Government must come clean about SpaceX," Web, Jan. 18), is a piece worthy of being published in The New York Times or The Washington Post.

No presidential straitjacket required

Although deciphering the mind remains a challenge for most of us ("Obama's doctor says Trump is in excellent health," Web, Jan. 18), some psychiatrists in our fair land, casting the Goldwater Rule aside, have assessed President Donald Trump's mental status from afar and judged him a proximate danger to the republic. While a presidential straitjacket is being designed by these highly educated and politicized do-gooders, we might consider prescribing a psychotropic drug for them, one designed to ease anxiety and panic.

Mahmoud Abbas, man of peace, to Trump: 'May your house be destroyed'

- The Washington Times

Mahmoud Abbas, leader of the Palestinian Authority, the guy who's frequently touted by both left- and right-leaning politicos as a moderate who wants nothing but peace with Israel, went on an shocking rant against the Jewish state and the United States in recent public remarks, ultimately unleashing a curse on President Donald Trump that went like this: "May your house be destroyed." Either Abbas has gone rogue or he's showing his true anti-West colors. The smart money's on Option B.
